Chelsea moved to the Premier League top four since Marcos Alonso strike gave them a 1-0 win over Newcastle.
Chelsea eventually broke down a obstinate Toon as Alonso (73) struck a ferocious low effort after being fed by Callum Hudson-Odoi about the remaining box.
The initial half lacked some straightforward chances as while in the second Tammy Abraham had three clear chances to score, both sides of Alonsos winner tops, Chelsea struggled to break a Newcastle side objective of playing the counter.
The end result means while Newcastle fall into three Chelsea go with their fifth straight win in all competitions.
Though the first half was not short on action in each third, clear chances were hard to come by. Newcastle used their pace in Allan Saint-Maximin Joelinton and Miguel Almiron to make a few problems for Chelsea, but Kepa Arrizabalaga had no shots to save as the visitors enrolled just 30 per cent ownership.
Chelsea came through Willians header broad and Mason Mounts turn and shot, rescued by Martin Dubravka, but it stated it that the first-half highlight came in the shape of referee Andre Marriner falling over after being struck around the face with the ball.
Ross Barkley has been introduced off with a bang with been struggling from the moments and Chelsea stepped things up afterwards.
Abraham hit the bar with a header and then headed over from an identical situation moments afterwards as Newcastle withdrew farther.
It was the introduction of Christian Pulisic which triggered Newcastle the troubles, and he would have graduated minutes after his debut but also for the heroic halt of Dubravka at his toes from point-blank selection.
The American was involved in the winner, however, as former Sunderland defender Alonso received revenge over the Newcastle fans who had been jeering him game. Pulisic squared to the similarly remarkable Hudson-Odoi to nourish Alonso, along with the Spaniard drive saw the corner despite Dubravka becoming a touch.
Abraham somebody left as soon as the Chelsea striker had an open target since DeAndre Yedlin made a amazing block, with no goal he deserved, but despite some late pressure from Newcastle, Chelsea acquired the things that they deserved.
After five consecutive wins, and also some experience of breaking sides down in Stamford Bridge, Chelsea will fancy themselves for a top-four finish as they begin to find their feet.
